Azam Khan and Imad Wasim signed contracts with Indian American League franchises, All-rounder Imad Wasim and wicket-keeper Batter Azam of the national cricket team signed with Seattle Orcas in the inaugural season of the American Major Cricket League.

Seattle Orcas, a team in the American league, is the co-owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Capitals, both cricketers have expressed their consent to participate in the league.

Both Azam Khan nor Imad Wasim are not central contract players of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), however national team cricketers who are central contract holders have to get NOC from the board.

No decision has yet been taken by the PCB regarding the participation of the players in the American League.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has responded positively to MLC’s request to include Pakistani players, the league management will pay at least $25,000 to each national cricketer.

Remember that the Major Cricket League will be held in the American city of Dallas between July 13 and 30, while 6 teams will participate in the event.

On the other hand, England’s aggressive batsman Jason Roy has terminated his contract with the board preferring to play league cricket, while other English cricketers are also ready to follow him.

Jason was paying 60 thousand pounds to Roy but now he has withdrawn from this contract, because of the contract he was not supposed to get NOC but now he is free to play any league.

In the past, the Indian board has offered other cricketers like Jason Roy to terminate their contracts with their board and make themselves available for the league, in return for a hefty fee.
